Oscar E. Peck
Birth: 1848
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Oct. 23, 1906
Connecticut, USA

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Second Class Boy in the Union Navy. His citation reads "Peck served as second class boy on board the USS Varuna during attacks on Forts Jackson and St. Philip, 24 April 1862. Acting as powder boy of the after rifle, Peck served gallantly while the Varuna was repeatedly attacked and rammed and finaly sunk. This was an extremely close-range action and, although badly damaged, the Varuna delivered shells abaft the Morgan's armor." (bio by: Don Morfe)
